Olivers Army
Written and recorded by Elvis Costello in 1978
Released in 1979 reaching number 2 in UK charts
Produced by Nick Lowe
Tabbed by bass50611. Any comments e-mail me at
bass254@btinternet.com.  Think it's more or less as recorded
single. Not too sure of the fade out ending, but it fits
Great song to play along to.
